The world premiere of the new Panamera model will be held at the Icons of Porsche festival in Dubai on 24 November 2023 at a special event, with the new model on display to festival attendees on 25-26 November 2023.
The sports saloon has already completed the majority of the test procedures, during which the four-door sports car demonstrated its qualities on four continents. For example, tests in the US checked the drivetrain performance at high altitudes and low oxygen levels or verified the performance of the engine-cooling system and the air conditioning in extreme heat. In Scandinavia, the Panamera was driven at very low temperatures; in South Africa, it mastered difficult road conditions; and in Asia, the high air humidity and hours of stop-and-go traffic in megacities posed particular challenges for the overall package.
The new model of the Panamera has a completely upgraded engine range with a state-of-the-art focus on sustainable drivetrains and efficiency.
The basis of all E-Hybrid models of the new Panamera is a new, more powerful electric motor that is now completely integrated in the transmission housing of the new dual clutch transmission. It offers higher drivetrain and recuperation performance values than its predecessor at a lower weight. Its energy is provided by a high voltage battery with a significantly higher capacity of 25.9 kWh. An on-board charger with a power of 11 kW shortens the charging time despite the increased energy content.
Fundamental revisions of the combustion engines facilitate additional efficiency and performance. All the drivetrains in the new Panamera are prepared for future emission standards.
Along with its comprehensively revised engine range, the new Panamera incorporates other new developments. For the first time the Panamera has an optional high-end chassis with active damper control and a wide range of additional functions.
The car is equipped with a semi-active chassis with new two-valve shock absorbers as standard, which can regulate the compression and rebound stages independently of each other. During the test drives, the last finishing touches will be made to the new Panamera before its world premiere.
Porsche is presenting the third generation of the four-door sports car at the Icons of Porsche Festival in Dubai on 24 November 2023. It will be on display for festival attendees on 25-26 November 2023.
